I labeled this second egg, because the first one broke. I wondered why Henrietta was hanging out in the corner of our back porch. I happened to look down today and saw the remains of an egg. I guessed that either Henrietta or Bob stepped on it. Since we don't have a large enough coop, I grabbed a banker's box, put it in the corner (where Henrietta had been hanging out), and put hay in it. Henrietta moved in right away! I checked about twenty minutes later, and saw an egg between her eggs. Good job Henrietta!

Bob and Henrietta really started exploring the yard recently. We fenced in an area behind our house (6000 square feet). The birds have been staying around the back porch and fig tree. I think the clover is too enticing.
I caught Bob and Henrietta wandering in the far corner behind the garage. They are very happy birds!

Bob and Henrietta discovered the back porch yesterday. Today, they were on it some more and even perched on top of the rocking chair. Bob kept looking in through the glass back door. He even pecked on the glass once!
No, Bob. You can NOT come in.

This little orangutan made me smile. He played with hay and then took a stroll toward Mom. Later, he stuck his arm in what looked like a large oatmeal container. I could have watched him all day long.

I took my younger son for a second walk to the park today. As we went, I noticed the moon just as I was getting near a Palmetto tree. Viola! Nature creates the South Carolina symbol.

I walked outside to snap a photo of the two and found them wallowing in the dirt. They had scratched themselves a nice spot right next to the back porch. This is the best clear shot. They were way too busy, and I have a few blurry shots as they wallowed and wallowed to their hearts' content.
